Expedition of the year
The Enduring Ice Project
Stephen Smith

To tell the story of the last of the Arctic’s sea ice, Stephen will lead a small team north to kayak its most dynamic strait, a narrow ice-choked passageway separating Canada and Greenland.

Their goal is to investigate the breakdown of a frozen ocean; their vision is to make the Arctic tangible. Major Expedition
